BERRY compliant
MADE IN THE U.S.A.

Flame-Resistant, Water-Resistant Heavy Duty Leather
Specially softened tumbled leather in high flex areas to move with you.

GORE® CROSSTECH® Footwear Fabric
A full-height bootie liner made from a package of Omaha lining fabric, 300g insulation, and GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier provides protection unmatched by any other waterproof, breathable barrier.

KEVLAR® Blend Protective Shield
Two layers of KEVLAR® blend batting separated by spacer fabric protect the GORE® CROSSTECH® moisture barrier, provides cut resistance, and adds thermal protection.

Aluminized PBI® Fabric
An added layer between the leather shell and the KEVLAR® blend fiber batting provides additional radiant and conductive heat protection to meet the higher thermal requirements for Proximity Fire Fighting.

3M™ SCOTCHLITE™ Reflective Material
For added visibility.

Pull Straps
Flexible NOMEX® webbing pull-straps reinforced with leather slide easily under turnout pants and are kind to your legs.

Padded Composite Shin Guard
Provides extra protection when you are working on a ladder

HEELPORT™ Internal Fit System
Holds your heel securely so it won’t slip while cushioning your ankle.

Composite Heel Counter
Individually molded to fit each size perfectly.

Composite Safety Toe Cap
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, and exceeds NFPA standards for safety.

VIBRAM® Toe Bumper
Made from the same rugged compound as the outsole for abrasion resistance when crawling.

Dual-Density Enhanced 3D Molded Footbed System
Removable dual-density footbeds are contoured to cradle and cushion the bottom of your feet and to provide arch support. Urethane foam bottom layer provides durable cushioning while a micro-cellular open-cell foam top layer delivers cool, all-day comfort. Moisture-wicking and anti-microbial fabric top pulls moisture away from your feet. An additional set of polymer inserts are provided to install under the footbeds when a snugger fit is desired.

3D Composite Lasting Board
Molded, contoured, and lasted to boot uppers with a built-in flex zone in the forefoot and a torsionally stable heel. Works together with the 3D molded footbed to conform to the shape of your foot.

Composite Shank
Lighter than steel, doesn’t transmit heat or cold, springs back to shape better.

Composite Puncture Protection
Far more flexible than a steel plate and doesn’t transmit heat or cold. Exceeds NFPA standards.

VIBRAM® Contoured Cup Outsole
Molded outsole wraps onto the leather upper for athletic shoe performance. Flame, abrasion, oil, acid and slip-resistant compound engineered for high traction and durability even during prolonged exposure to extremes of heat and cold.

Athletic Footwear Construction
2-part cross-linking adhesive bonds outsoles to the upper. Without stiff welts and ribbed mid-soles, this attachment process is far more flexible.

Slip-Resistant Tread
Siping – thin slits cut into flat areas across the sole – opens up when flexed to provide additional traction on water and ice. Self-cleaning lugs and omni-direction tread pattern designed for superior performance in all terrains and when working on ladders.
